“It’s a double-edged sword,” Ashley Greene says about her Twilight fame—and the tabloid coverage that comes with it. “It’s amazing to be known, and it’s great that there is this audience that wants to know about me. But I’m like, ‘I’m going to be known for coming out of the gym rather than [for] what film I have coming out.'” Here, Greene poses in a Zac Posen dress. She showed her sweet side when capturing this shot: She said, “I’m so sorry!” to the male model after each time she tossed the water at him.
Besides her acting career, Greene is also known as the girl who snagged Joe Jonas’s heart shortly after he broke up with Demi Lovato, who later sought treatment for “emotional and physical” issues. “I’m really happy that she’s doing well,” she says of Lovato. The actress also rolls her eyes at the rumor that they fought over Jonas. “She and I never had a problem with each other,” Greene says. “But, you know, it doesn’t go away…. Jen Aniston still gets asked about Angelina Jolie.” Dress by Donna Karan New York.
Greene talks about the Twilight cast as if they were a second family, and about Robert Pattinson as if he were an awkward brother. “Rob. Oh, Rob. He’s very endearing, but you’ve seen his interviews. He’s like, ‘Ah, I don’t know…. Oh, God,'” Greene bumbles in imitation. Despite poking a little fun at him, she credits Pattinson (she calls him a “phenomenal actor”) and the rest of the actors for helping her cope with sudden fame. “All of us essentially were unknown. So everyone kind of went through this crazy whirlwind [together],'” Greene says. “It was really nice to be able to confide in people who were going through the exact same thing.”
“We wanted to do a look she was comfortable with—very natural and beautiful,” said hairstylist Serge Normant. He added volumizer and blow-dried Greene’s hair, then created a soft bend with a one-inch curling iron.
While getting ready for the shoot, Greene mentioned how happy she was to be out of her pale Twilight makeup. Makeup artist Romy Soleimani said, “I wanted to use peaches and warm pinks.” First, Soleimani dusted on a sheer taupe eye shadow, then lined the actress’s eyes with a black pencil and a charcoal shadow. Then she layered a warm peach blush on top of nude and pink ones. Finally, Soleimani patted on a nude-pink lipstick with an extra dab of pink on the center of Greene’s mouth.
Lately, Greene has been trying to stay out of the tabloids. She tries to “avoid nightclubs and making out in public,” the star says. Despite her efforts, since breaking up with Jonas in March, Greene has been linked to an impressive roster of men, including Twilight costar Jackson Rathbone, Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill, and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. “Seth and I are friends, and he texts me: ‘I didn’t know that not only were we dating, but we have since been confirmed to not be dating,'” Greene says. “I can assure you that we’re not.”
